TodoCelular has already checked everything Zenfone 5 has to offer. This is the moment to look at the potential of the most powerful model, the Zenfone 5Z. Both offer the same power capacity, namely 3300 mAh. What changes are the Qualcomm chipset, with Snapdragon 636 in the middle and Snapdragon 845 in the most powerful.
In theory, the Zenfone 5Z should yield less, because it has stronger hardware, which should have a higher consumption. The good news, however, is that the charger supplied is more powerful than the 10W that came with the Zenfone 5, making the flagship less time-consuming.
Zenfone 5 yielded 10 cycles in our test, with a total of 13 hours of use and 7 hours of connected display. And here you get the same test with the Zenfone 5Z, where you use the device all day with various apps and games. In our tests we followed the following methodology, using the smartphone with the factory settings and the brightness of the screen set to 200 lux (using a luxmeter).
- 6 minutes browsing the All Mobile site with Chrome, video & # 39; s on YouTube, video on MX Player, streaming on Spotify, numbers on PowerAMP, WhatsApp and games;
- 4 minutes on calls;
- 2 minutes from Facebook, Gmail and Google Maps.
It took the standard 18-Watt charger from Asus 1 hour and 24 minutes to completely fill the 3300 mAh battery of the Zenfone 5Z.
- After 14 hours and 7 minutes, the device ended the test cycles with a balance of only 1% residual energy.
- The smartphone has completed a total of 7 hours and 11 minutes with the display turned on during the test.
- We have performed 10 complete test cycles, including:
- Browsing for 60 minutes in Chrome;
- 300 minutes WhatsApp, Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music), MX Player (video) and YouTube (60 minutes each);
- 60 minutes of games (Pokémon Go, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, Injustice and Asphalt 8);
- 60 minutes Facebook, Gmail and Google Maps (20 minutes each);
- 40 minutes of voice calls connected to mobile networks;
- The application that used most of the battery was the voter;
- The least devouring app was PowerAMP.
The Zenfone 5Z features the powerful Snapdragon 845, powered by a 3,300 mAh battery. This capacity was sufficient to keep the device from the socket for 14 hours. He ended not only with his less powerful brother, Zenfone 5, but also with the main flagships of the market: Galaxy S9, iPhone X and LG G7 ThinQ.
It is good to remember that the Asus smartphone has energy management, supported by Artificial Intelligence. The company promises that over time the autonomy will be even better. The wizard learns the habits of the user to optimize the functions of the device and reduces unnecessary consumption.
Unfortunately, we could not verify this in our test. Anyway, we can expect a slightly better result than our battery test. What a great news for anyone interested in Zenfone 5Z.

Test with Zenfone 5Z. We had a total of 14 hours and 7 minutes of use with 7 hours and 11 minutes connected screen, which brings it to the same level as the Zenfone 5. Both offer 3,300 mAh with the same screen of 6.2 FHD +, but for the processor more powerful than 5Z It was really great to see that the flagship represents the same as the intermediate version of Asus.
